Pattern Recognition in

Astronomy and Photonics

“In the course of recalling the evolution of her work toward applying pattern recognition to astronomy, the realization hit Tin Kam Ho like a bolt of lightening. ‘I find one continuing theme in my different application areas—they all have something to do with light!’”



The Office of the Secretariat

What exactly is a “secretariat” and what does the Secretariat of the IAPR do for you?


Books, Books, Books

Robert B. Fisher of the University of Edinburgh discusses CVonline, a key online resource for computer vision students and researchers.


Pattern Recognition Letters

“Pattern Recognition Letters is the official journal of the IAPR.  It publishes concise articles in a broad range of areas that roughly match the interests represented in the IAPR technical committees.”


From the ExCo

IAPR Secretary Denis Laurendeau gives news about IAPR business, including results of the Nominating and K S Fu Prize Committees ballots.


Pattern Recognition in Cryptic Wildlife Species--Can you help? 

Pattern recognition in cryptic wildlife species is an evolving field resulting from the increasing use of photographic images resulting from non-invasive techniques such as infra-red, “heat-in-motion” detecting cameras in the field. 


Pattern Recognition for Bioinformatics

Chairs of the newly-established TC20 introduce the exciting field of bioinformatics and explain the role of pattern recognition in it.
